A surprise :)

Yesterday i got a TP from a friend.
As soon as i accepted it I came face to face with a true Command Squad, determined upon celebrating my 4th rezzday!
My closest friends, Laura, Yvette and Bety did summon me at Sonatta Morales's main store - one of my SL Dreamlands - commanding me to choose my gift :)
I thought to take advantage from their decision and I solemnly declarated I would be happy to accept the whole store as a gift ;)
After being listening a lot of laughs from them, I turned serious and I began the hard task of choosing among the endless wishes that store make me feel.
It should take even some weeks watching, desiring, comparing, choosing between gowns and cocktail dresses, reflecting on that pretty texture or on that cute ribbon... but I couldn't stole my friends so much time. So, I let my instinct driving me. And this is the result:

Aldebaran is a mid-short coktail dress made by a multi-layers skirt and a semi-transparent top, enriched by a darker men's taylored collar and by a wonderful black velvet sash with a big ribbon on the waist.
It comes along with matching textured shoes and clutch.
The wonderful black and gold flowered texture, the wide skirt, the classy and sexy shape of the top that leaves shoulders naked, compose a perfect whole, inspired to 1940s best elegance.

As usual, I'm grateful to Sonatta for offering all of us these great clothes. But, of course, I thank even more Laura, Yve and Bety for giving me this great gift. They know very well my taste, my preferences, my whims. I couldn't ever get their gift without their advices, based upon their model's and stylist's great skills.
Today I wanted to shoot the dress for this post, and I couldn't find a better place than the renewed Sonatta's shop at Seraph City. I love that City, one of the best retro environments in SL, and I find that the wide empty space of the shop's main hall, surrounded by a parade of Sonatta's masterpieces, would be a perfect background for this great creation.
I've chosen a pose by Reel: it's an homage to that great pose creator, who unfortunately left SL since a while.

Vanity is a matter of love: love for friends, for creators, for ourselves. So I'm happy to spend this time shooting the dress and writing this post, so full with vanity, and to dedicate it to my beloved friends.
